David SeeClient asking for quote for Workcover induction on construction site

Hi all,

Not sure how it works in other countries, but here in Australia WorkCover oversees/governs Occupational Health and Safety matters on construction sites, amongst other things.

I have been asked to submit a quote by my client as to how much it will cost them to have me attend an induction day on their new construction site for Workcover.

Was wondering how I should charge...should I quote a normal day rate, or - seeing as I will not be using video production equipment - should it be a lesser rate?

Cheers,

DS

David,

If the event eats up most of an entire work day, bill them at your day rate. However, if you get the impression that doing so might put the rest of the project in jeopardy, then bill them for some portion of your day rate, such as half a day or two-thirds of a day. Winning the war is certainly better than winning a small battle.

However, the above is predicated on your charging enough for your time in the first place, and I see from your new post below that you're not so sure about that. If you're not sure, then I'm not nearly as certain about my advice above. So, why don't you lay it on us, and just divulge what you do charge?

I would equate this as a location scout with my Videographer/DP. Charge half your normal day rate.
